Ramié, Catalogue of the edited ceramic works, n° 424/425/426/427/428/429/430/431, p. 224 à 227, illustrated in color. Provenance : Private Collection (Switzerland) From the first visit to Vallauris, also known as “the city of hundred potters”, Pablo Picasso remained fascinated with the freedom and expressive nature of the ceramic medium. To satisfy his vigorous creativity, he begun to collaborate with Ramié couple, founder of the Madoura Atelier, in 1947 and it lasted for more than 20 years. Through the exploration of the new medium, the painter transcribes his most iconic subjects by manufacturing a wonderful universe of forms and textures. “Tête de chèvre de profil” expresses a fundamental living testimony, a constant reflection on the creative essence and the elaboration of the forms.

About the Artist

Pablo Picasso

One of the most prolific and revolutionary artists the world has ever seen, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) had a tremendous impact on the development of 20th-century modern art.Although he is best known for his association with the Cubist movement, which he founded with Georges Braque, Picasso’s influence extends to Surrealism, neoclassicism and expressionism.“Every act of creation is, first of all, an act of destruction,” the Spanish artist proclaimed. In his Cubist paintings, he emphasizes the two-dimensionality of the canvas, breaking with conventions regarding perspective, foreshortening and proportion. Picasso was inspired by Iberian and African tribal art. One of his most famous pre-Cubist works is Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), a painting considered immoral and shocking at the time for its depiction of nude women whose faces resemble Iberian tribal masks.He made many portraits in this style, most often of the women in his life, their expressively colored faces composed of geometric shards of surface planes. In Woman in a Hat (Olga), 1935, he painted his first wife as an assemblage of abstract forms, leaving the viewer to decipher the subject through the contrasting colors and shapes. Picasso was a tireless artist, creating more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculptures. Tracing his life’s work reveals the progression of modern art, on which he had an unparalleled influence.Browse an expansive collection of Pablo Picasso's art on 1stDibs.
